"Thanks again so much for a great day fishing. My dad and I had a great time. Good luck with the softball in Mankato and drive safe." - Matt (Red Wing trip 09/23/11)

It's good to be back on the river

Tuesday late morning I got out with Morgan, Mia, and their father Tim.  The bite was not on fire but we did manage to scrap some walleye together for them to have the fish tacos they wanted.  

We started out dragging jigs with lots of biters but they just kept stealing our bait today.   We then set out to do some trolling and that's where we caught most of our eaters today.  Biggest walleye went to Mia most fir went to Mo.  And dad finished third on this trip.  

Tim you have a great couple of young ladies and very well behaved .  It's always fun to take your family fishing.  I look forward to our trip this fall when you bring O dog out for his next trip.  Heven fun at school girls...

Friday morning Helen and I met Brian at Baypoint Park around 915 for a shortbut hot fishing day on the river.  We started fishing a sandbar area that produced some smaller walleyes this morning.  After our first troll in this spot we moved to spot two and it was not long a Brian brought in the first keeper of the day.  

After a couple hours of this we decided to go cast for some Northern pike.  What a blast that was to watch Helen reel in those big fish.  One of them even have our bait in his mouth he broke the leader right at the boat.  Atleast we seen him it looked like a 35 incher or so.  Brian it was a blast with you as always and I can't wait till the next outing.   

Good luck out there guys and gals !!!!!!
